Hi,

I'm trying to find out what BusinessObjects License my company is using.  I'm not a BusinessObjects user or admin this is part of a migration project. A test BusinessObjects license is needed for another Server and I need to order a test license from finance but need to know what license the current BusinessObjects Server is using.

I've been asked if it's an Enterprise Query or access to the local SRE environment! I'm a bit confused at this stage! Can you please help I've attached a screenshot

I am sure others will chime in but to the best of my knowledge you only need to be concerned about the user licenses.   You have a choice of Concurrent Access (CALs) and Named User (NULs).

The other thing you need to find out is which BO products are you using.  You need to get a license for BO XI 3.1.  The documents on this page should help you determine what you need

The easiest way to find the licenses is to login to the Central Management Console and navigate to the licenses page, which will display the license keys, type of licenses and number of licenses.  The types of licenses are:

CPU
CAL (Concurrent Access License)
NUL (Named User License)

If you don't have access to the environment, then you need to get with somebody who does.

Regarding the software, the current version of the SAP BI Platform (it's no longer known as BusinessObjects Enterprise) is 4.1.  What's the purpose of your project? Is it to upgrade the environment, scale it out (either horizontally or vertically), etc...?  What you need to download and install depends on what you're trying to accomplish.
